Norton Cancer Institute is a part of Norton Healthcare, a not-for-profit organization that relies on the generosity of the community to support programs, technology and research improvements, and education. Money raised goes back to the community in the form of health services.
Through the generosity of donors to the Norton Healthcare Foundation, Norton Cancer Institute has been able to provide:
- Oncology certification for specialized nursing, which translates to a higher quality of care for patients and families
- Meditation and relaxation spaces at the new Norton Cancer Institute – Downtown facility to provide comfort for patients and families during their cancer journey
- The Nixon Lectureship series, an educational lecture open to the public featuring some of the country's leading cancer researchers in the field of gynecologic cancers and palliative care
- Gail Klein Garlove Lectureship series, an annual educational lecture open to the public featuring a national leader in the prevention and treatment of cancer
We want to ensure that Norton Cancer Institute stays up-to-date on medical advances and technology. Reimbursement from insurance may cover the cost of providing treatment, but it doesn't cover the purchase of new equipment; support services, such as spiritual care for patients and their families; or facility upgrades, such as comfortable waiting areas and amenities.
The work of the Norton Healthcare Foundation also helps ensure that when you need health care, it will be available close to home.
Have you or someone you know been affected by cancer? Perhaps you ride in memory of a loved one or to celebrate survivorship. The Bike to Beat Cancer is a one-day bicycling event for all riders who want to make a difference and help those battling cancer at Norton Cancer Institute. There are three distance options from which to choose: 35, 65 or 100 miles. Not a bike rider? You can always volunteer. Whatever you do, you are helping those battling cancer.
The Bike to Beat Cancer helps support Norton Cancer Institute's Prevention & Early Detection Program, survivorship services and clinical research. Learn more now.

Gail Klein Garlove was born Oct. 28, 1939. She died of cancer on July 14, 1994. During her lifetime of dedicated service to the community, Mrs. Garlove worked as an assistant librarian at the Louisville Collegiate School. She also volunteered at Kentucky Country Day School, the Louisville Free Public Library's "Talking Book" program and the Mormon Home for Retirees.
The Gail Klein Garlove Lectureship Series is sponsored in her honor by Mrs. Garlove's three children - Matt Lee Garlove Jr., Robin Garlove Fine and Lee Klein Garlove. Proceeds from the lectureship benefit the Norton Healthcare Foundation and Norton Cancer Institute.
This lecture was established by Gouverneur H. "Bo" Nixon and his family in memory of his late wife, Dorothy P. "Dottie" Nixon. The lecture seeks to raise awareness around the need for cutting-edge gynecologic cancer treatments and the latest in palliative care techniques.
The Nixon family established the Oncology Education and Prevention Fund through the Norton Healthcare Foundation with a goal of providing funding for the continuing education and certification of registered nurses to become oncology certified. To date, the program has provided support for the certification of more than 120 nurses now practicing at Norton Cancer Institute.
Your contribution to the Oncology Spirit Fund serves as an expression of appreciation for the dedicated care provided by the oncology staff at Norton Healthcare, while also offering an outlet for stress relief and team building. In turn, oncology staff members approach patients with a more positive, fresh outlook and can continue to provide quality health care that the community has come to expect from Norton Cancer Institute.
